Microsoft Edge legacy title bar to be added in July

According to Reddit, as part of the July update for Microsoft Edge, developers will finally introduce support for classic or legacy Edge’s tab previews feature.

This new feature will be available with the Microsoft Edge Canary and it will allow users to hide the title bar and it will enter its Beta testing phase next month.

Following this update, you will be able to set the browser to hide its title bar through a simple context menu, or through the browser’s settings.

This could be achieved, until recently, by using an experimental flag, through edge://flags. By doing so, many users have encountered some issues, so this change is more than welcome.
